Many were pleasantly surprised this week when Josh Allen and Mike Edwards decided to return for their senior season with the Kentucky Wildcats.
Both of these guys have received SEC awards during their tenure and received feedback that they would likely be selected during the 2018 NFL Draft.
On Thursday, they opened up about their rationale for returning to school.
“I can improve my tackling,” said Edwards. “I had a lot of tackles but I missed a lot of tackles in the open space. Also get my body in shape. Get more physical, more lean and more muscular.”
Allegedly, Edwards received a variety of draft projections from NFL scouts, but the highest grade had him being selected in the third round.
“When they said stuff like that, I was just like I need to get some real accurate (projections),” Edwards said.
